Wed 03 March 2021 | 17:39

Paris Saint-Germain striker Moise Kean has tested positive for COVID-19 and has gone into self-isolation.

PSG

will host

Barcelona

in the second leg of Champions League last 16 next Wednesday, leading 4-1 from the first leg in Spain, with

Kean

scoring a goal in that game. But the Italian striker is expected to miss the return leg as he has to observe the self-isolation rules.

The 21-year-old Kean has done well since joining on a season-long loan from Premier League team

Everton

, scoring 15 goals in 27 games.

PSG have released an 

official statement

 confirming the news, which reads

: "Moise Kean tested positive in the Sars-Cov2 PCR test this morning. He stayed in Paris and will not be available for the match in Bordeaux.

"He will therefore enter a period of isolation and is subject to the appropriate health protocols."
